Customer Reviews

Will stew over this guide all winter to hopefully plan another trip for next summer!

The trail descriptions and pictures were very helpful and were consistent with what we experienced when hiked the trails the book described.
H. A. Lambert Jr.
He goes into great detail, which can be distracting if you are just wanting to see the big picture.

If you are planning a trip to the Bob Marshall you will do yourself a great favor by purchasing this book, then wrapping it in a zip-lock bag for your journey. The book provides a comprehensive overview of every trail in the Wilderness area. It gives a succinct synopsis of each trail by describing level of difficulty, frequency of maintenance, and elevation change. The book further describes the ecosystem that you are hiking thru and assists you in understanding the bio-diversity of each area. Perhaps most valuable, the book also provides a precsient review of the hazards of each seperate area--and methods of countering these hazards. These hazards include micro-organisms in the water and of course the ever-present grizzly and black Bears. Don't leave home without it!

Format: Paperback
Erik Molvar has written numerous hiking guides for Falcon; this one is probably his magnum opus. Comprehensive and thoroughly researched, it's replete with natural history notes as well as hike descriptions and directions to trailheads.

The sheer size of the Bob Marshall Complex presents a particular challenge to a would-be author of a hiking guide, namely, how to encompass its breadth without making every hike a hundred miles in length. Molvar's solution is to segregate particular sections of trail into hikes whose starting and ending points lie conveniently at or near the junctions of other trails, which he in turn describes in other hikes. You can thus piece them together to create trips of your own design. He also includes side trips (such as to summits in the interior) and numerous day hikes along the margins and boundaries of the Bob.

Appendices include segmented mileages of trunk trails that provide access to more remote portions of the wilderness (I appreciate the meticulous mileage notes throughout the book), and descriptions of several classic extended trips such as Spotted Bear to Benchmark and Benchmark to Holland Lake. Also covered are hikes in adjoining roadless areas (such as the Rocky Mountain Front and Jewel Basin) that lie outside the wilderness proper.

Molvar has seemingly tromped every mile of the places he describes. Buy this book and follow in his footsteps.

If you really want to know about trails in The Bob Marshall Wilderness area this is covers the most important trails. The hike descriptions and profiles are quite helpful in planning a trek. I have used this book a few times although it is a bit heavy to carry on the trail. Use it to plan and take a copy of the hikes needed to cover your trek.

Excellent guide to the various regions of this wilderness. The descriptions seem complete, and I appreciate knowing when I will be required to make a ford of a stream.

The book has detailed descriptions of the trails and also how to arrive at trail heads. I have not hiked any of them yet, so I cannot say how accurate any of them are.

Great trail descriptions and accompanying maps, and nice pictures that lure you in-- it's all beautiful country and it's BIG and WILD- no roadway shortcuts or tour busses-- lots of back country! This is a good read (A FALCON Guide) and I recommend it highly! But I'd also highly recommend the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex map(s) by CAIRN CARTOGRAPHICS. Both products reinforce each other, and will help assure a great and safe trip!
